Introduction

For this Piece of coursework I am going to investigate T-totals in relation to the T-number on different sized grids. I am then going to investigate the relationship between the T-total of a T-shape in 1 area of a grid to when it is translated, using any vector, to another area of the grid. 7 8 9 13 18 A T-shape consists of five numbers, when added together theses numbers create the T-total. The T-number is the number at the bottom of the T-shape. E.G. - The T-total for this shape would be 7+8+9+13+18 = 55 - The T-number for this shape would be 18 Throughout this Coursework I will refer to the T-total as 'T' and the T-number as 'N'. I started by investigating the relationships on a 5x5 grid, making sure I worked in a systematic way in order to make it easier to compare the results and discover a comparison. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 T-number (n) T-Total (T) 12 25 13 30 14 35 I can see from the table that as N increases by 1, T increases by 5, using this information I can begin to create a formula. ...read more.

I then worked out the formula for a 8x8 grid using the same process. T-number (n) T-Total (T) 18 34 19 39 20 44 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 I can see from the table that, like on the other grid, as N increases by 1, T increases by 5. So I know that the beginning of the formula is the same. 18(n) x 5 = 90 90 - 34(T) = 56 So, T = 5n - 56 Proof I created the T-shape, for this grid, below in order to prove my formula. N-17 N-16 N-15 N-8 N So, T = n-13+n-12+n-11+n-6+n T = 5n - 42 Therefore, according to this T-shape my formula is correct. I then worked out the formula for a 9x9 grid using the same process. T-number (n) T-Total (T) 20 37 21 42 22 47 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 ...read more.

Conclusion

I will use a 10x10 grid and experiment with different vectors to see if there is a pattern. H amount moved horizontally V amount moved vertically N-2G+1 N-2G N-2G-1 N-G N N-2G+1 +h N-2G+h N-2G-1+h N-G+h N+h Original T-shape T-shape moved right H So,T-total = n-2g+1+h+n-2g+h+n-2g-1+h+n-g+h+n+h = 5N - 7G + 5H N-2G+1 N-2G N-2G-1 N-G N N-2G+1 -Gv N-2G-Gv N-2G-1-Gv N-G-Gv N-Gv Original T-shape T-shape moved up V So,T-total = n-2g+1-gv+n-2g-gv+n-2g-1-gv+n-n-g-gv+n-gv = 5N - 7G + 5GV These can be proven by checking it within the grid below. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 34 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 35 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 36 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 37 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 38 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 39 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 N-2G+1 +1 N-2G+1 N-2G-1+1 N-G+1 N+1 N-2G+1 -10 N-2G-10 N-2G-1-10 N-G-10 N-10 T-shape moved right 1 T-shape moved up 1 In conclusion I have found that the T-total of a vector H is V T = 5N - 7G + 5H - GV ...read more.

    I believe that I did prove this to extent. Out of town shopping is becoming the number one choice for many people to shop at, the sheer numbers of people visiting showing this. There are many reasons for this; most these being small things, but once added together make out of town shopping centres a strong opponent to town centres.
